Magical Mickey surprises bring good fortune 

The Year of the Mouse kicks off on a high note as Mickey Mouse shows off the park’s festive decorations, including fai chun, beautiful lanterns and flowers. Mickey will join his friends in their Chinese New Year outfits as they wish everyone a Happy New Year filled with good fortune and happiness. The Disneyland Band will also share happiness with guests by performing a series of CNY-themed songs! 

Mickey has also prepared a list of the “luckiest” spots, and a specially created “Mickey’s Lucky Trail,” featuring nine spots in the park filled with good luck to help guests collect blessings for the new year during the first three days of the Lunar New Year. Lucky guests can collect the special edition set of two Mickey and Minnie stickers along the trail. 

Guests visiting HKDL during the first five days of the Chinese New Year (January 25 to 29, 2020) will receive a newly-designed, Mickey Mouse-themed red packet upon entering the park, while stocks last. These limited-edition “packs of fortune” make memorable souvenirs and can turn into a traditional “fai chun” banner decoration that guests can hang at home to welcome fortune through their doors.
